    Luxray(After Armaldo, Sharpedo, Krookodile, and Medicham)

    [Overview]

    - Luxray is a cool mon that needs more use
    - 2 great abilities in Intimidate and Guts
    - Base 120 Attack isn't that bad either
    - However, unlike most other physical Electric-type Pokemon, 80 / 79 / 79 Defenses means it can take a hit, physical defense even better with Intimidate
    - Physical Movepool is lacking, consisting of moves such as Wild Charge and weak coverage in Ice Fang, but at least it has coverage
    - Support Movepool is pretty good however, consisting of moves such as Helping Hand and Light Screen
    - However, base 70 Speed is it's downfall, as it opens up holes to Pokemon such as Krookodile and other fast mons
    - Don't underestimate this though, Luxray is a bad ass Pokemon!
